For this month's challenge, we are back to the usual challenge trend of looking toward the latest Three Way blog post for our inspiration. If you haven't read this month's Three Way | Stamp Savvy, you can read the details now. We've shared some fun ways to play with stamps on our pages.

So, for this challenge you MUST use one of the 3 example ideas on your pages! Please let us know in the comments below, along with your link to your page, which of the Three Way | Stamp Savvy ideas you used on your page.

To recap the Stamp Savvy ideas:
1) Use a stamp to create a pattern or foundation for your page/photo area
2) Use at least 2 stamps together to create a "relief" look on your page
3) Use a stamp, repeated several times, to fill in shape/object/container

I absolutely can not wait to see your creative pages this month!


Check out these jaw dropping pages by the Pink Ladies:

First up is this sweet page made by Diane. She makes a statement with technique #3 (Use a stamp, repeated several times, to fill in shape/object/container) and the result is a fun design element that I just adore ... check out this oversize monogram with sweet images stamped inside of the stitched E. It is so playful and goes right along with the photos of her grandson creating an imaginary world out of a box!

GĂ©raldine created (also using technique #3 : Use a stamp, repeated several times, to fill in shape/object/container) this dreamy page by filling in wings with a quote just perfect for the content of the page and adding them to an adorable extracted photo! There's even a bit of text stamp repeated subtly as the foundation for her photo. I absolutely love the look! So whimsical and playful!

Up next is this beautiful piece of inspiration by Shivani using techniques #2 (Use at least 2 stamps together to create a "relief" look on your page) and #3 (Use a stamp, repeated several times, to fill in shape/object/container). The warm glow of the "birthday candle blowing" moment is so richly complimented by the painty foundation underneath it, and the little touch of the relief look adds interest and draws the eye to that special photo. She also took a plain white piece of card stock and prettied it up with lots of flowers in gorgeous celebratory colors! Reminds me of a beautiful forever bouquet. So gorgeous!

    Stamps on alpha and repeat background pattern, like the look of the words in the wings, will try that another time. x

    I used multiple copies of a stamp to make a base for my photo. Then I used a brush to remove part of the base.
